Travis Simpkins provides an illustration of “A Cavalier” by Frans van Mieris, which was stolen from the Art Gallery of New South Wales on June 10, 2007. It has not been recovered. The painting is the namesake of the Stolen Cavalier website, and it’s recovery has long been a primary goal. According to Anthony Amore, “When a masterpiece goes missing, civilization loses a piece of its connection with the period in which it was created. When we abandon the search for such items, we are making a statement about our attitudes towards such matters — a statement that does not speak well of us as a people.”
